Wood white butterflyBeautiful Broadleaf Woods.

The name Haugh, which is pronounced "Hoff" is derived from the name of a Saxon owner indicating that this is the site of an ancient wood. Haugh Woods, at nearly 350 hectares (850 acres), is nationally important for butterflies and moths, with over 600 species recorded within it. This makes the wood one of the top 10 woods in the country and is designated as a SSSI due to the presence of these invertebrates.

Fabulous walk today. First time there. Main car park could do with dog poo bins. Otherwise loved the area.

We do not have postcodes for many of our woods I'm afraid - the post office only issue postcodes where there is a postal address eg a residential or business building - sorry

Have just spent a lovely day at Haugh Woods. Couldn't give 5 stars because of the litter in the car park and packaged dog poo! A marked buggy/ wheelchair trail would be a great addition.

Thank you for letting us know, we will let our litter contractor know.
